Motoring magazine show Top Gear is outsourcing the selection of tunes for its latest album to social media channels by asking fans of the show to nominate their favourite driving ditties on the shows Facebook page.

All songs entered by the end of today will be considered for inclusion with some of the choice entries received thus far including Iron maiden’s Run to the Hills and The Prodigy’s Voodoo People.

Other works to make the flit from music track to racetrack are Led Zeppelin’s Immigrant Song, Black Sabbath’s Warpigs and Billy idol’s White Wedding.
